For me it's all about planning and not giving in to impulsive eating. I'm still going to have fried chicken occasionally, maybe once/month. I log it in the nutrional tracker and stay within my limits. Same goes for chocolate. I don't eat it every week but gotta have it sometimes. Also, I have a fondness for Scotch. I log it in along with everything else in the tracker. And for those rare occasions when I go over on the daily calorie range I eat less the next day and exercise more. And I love McDonalds too!

Personally I think it is a good idea also that you are having them once a week. I used to restrict too many foods and hence would go waaaaaay overboard when i did "cave" in. So now nothing really is forbidden for me.......... except cereal. Everything else I just have to be smart about it. For example, I never, ever take ice cream out of the half gallon (because I'd never stop). I buy myself ice cream sandwiches since they are portioned out.
My point is : you are on the right track!!! good job. And yes you can eat so yummy at home. Your body just needs time to adjust to a new way of fabulous eating! yay

I think it is all about balance.

Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things:... Psalm 98

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though... we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day my day....So fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal
2 COR 16-18

Doing nothing is the most perfect form of action, when I do nothing there is nothing left undone and there is nothing left to do.... The Way by Lao Tse

I believe you'll be able to reduce your hunger for unhealthy foods - gradually! I used to swing back and forth between alfalfa sprouts and McDonald's with each swing causing a craving for the other extreme. When I joined SparkPeople I vowed to give up all-or-nothing thinking and begin to learn how to eat, exercise, and LIVE moderately!

I dont eat out, but sometimes my mind wanders to pizza or Wendy's. Still I dont feel like I am depriving myself and ONE DAY I can get to the point to endulge in taste buds.

Getting back into recipes and planning.

Ask for my favorite foods, and you get a list of McDonalds, hardees, pizza, kfc and a ream of artery-clogging tastefull badness.

I'm restricting my "gotta-have" foods to once a week (i've only ever ate out a couple times a week because its friggin expensive), and trying to more watchful about what I put in my mouth.

I also do 99 percent of my grocery shopping at Aldis, so I'm interested in finding out if I can be a mindful eater without switching grocery stores.

P.S. This group is a GREAT idea!
